Melanie Patt graduated in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the ETH Zurich and received a federal diploma as a pharmacist in 2014. She conducted her master thesis at the Drug Formulation and Delivery group of the ETH on site-directed mutagenesis and PEGylation of two prolyl endopeptidases. After graduation, she worked as a pharmacist in a hospital as well as in a community pharmacy.
In May 2016 she joined the Molecular and Systems Toxicology group as a PhD-student. Her research focuses on xenobiotics disrupting the adrenocortical steroid biosynthesis.
